My great-grandfather is Albert JASS, Sr., son of August JASS (1816-1849) and Karoline BAHR.August is the son of Martin JASS. Albert had a brother named Fritz.
Albert was born in 1836 in Kalte Hof near Schlochau, Germany.He married Wilhelmina Boehnke in 1866 in Bärenwalde, Germany.She died giving birth to their 6th son in 1877 (the child also died).Surviving children were: Fredrich Wilhelm, Albert Theodore, Carl George, Julius Ewald, Herman Henry.
Albert then married Wilhelmina Haut in 1878. They had one son, Gustav Adolph, and one daughter, Bertha Emilie, in Germany then immigrated to Hancock Co., Iowa in 1883.In Iowa, they had six more daughters: Anna Otelia (died at 2 yrs), Augusta Albertina, Emma Alvina, Martha Elizabeth Louise, Wilhelmina Caroline, Mathilda Marie.
